Okay, Aamir, you’ve won me over. After seeing that teaser over and over and over and over again, the trailer added enough new to it that I am interested.
Really interesting that Aamir chose to make this movie. It’s not just that he is taking more of a supporting role, it’s that this will be a nice small film. No romance, no action scenes, no other big names. Just a tiny plot about a girl who wants to sing and her father who tries to stop her.
It’s a nice small story, but it’s also a story that I am very excited to see get told. Aamir as an aging megastar entertainment type, who is also a really sweet kindly mentor to a young girl. And a young girl whose father isn’t the big dramatic kind of abusive, but the small and petty kind that doesn’t get shown on film as much. Or rather, gets shown on film but not acknowledged as abuse. And most of all, a young girl who has her own dreams and deserves to go after them. Not because her true love supports her, or her father encourages her, but because she just wants it for herself.
